Hillary Clinton Argues that Unborn Children Do Not Have Constitutional Protections

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said that an "unborn person" does not have rights. She was asked whether an "unborn child" has constitutional protections.

She stated, "Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights. Now, that doesn't mean that we don't do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support. It doesn't mean that you don't do everything possible to try to fulfill your obligations. But it does not include sacrificing the woman's right to make decisions."

Abortion was brought to the forefront when, last week, GOP front-runner Donald Trump said a woman who undergoes an abortion should be punished if the procedure is outlawed. He clarified his statement to say that only the doctor should be punished in such a situation.
